LOS ANGELES, CA – The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences rounds out the year with new screenings in the series The Perfect Match: Hollywood Costume Collaborations, in conjunction with the landmark Hollywood Costume exhibition now on view, and introduces A New Career in a New Town: Weimar Directors in Berlin and Hollywood, a screening series of early German cinema paired with equally classic Hollywood films.

 

The Perfect Match: Hollywood Costume Collaborations

The Academy spotlights three partnerships from Hollywood's Golden Age in The Perfect Match: Hollywood Costume Collaborations during the month of December.  Beginning with Clare West, one of the earliest Hollywood costume designers, and her collaborations with director Cecil B. DeMille on "The Golden Bed" and "Male and Female," the series goes on to examine the work of Milo Anderson and Michael Curtiz on "The Adventures of Robin Hood" and "Mildred Pierce," and two of the many collaborations between eight-time Oscar®-winner Edith Head and Alfred Hitchcock, "Notorious" and "Vertigo."
